Recently named the new undersheriff of Posadas County, Estelle Reyes-Guzman investigates the disappearance of a local insurance broker and the death of a young single mother whose fatal motorcycle accident may have been caused by a vengeful local cop.

McMillan Palgrave
Another Posadas County mystery with Estelle Reyes-Guzman as the undersheriff, but with the ever more popular Bill Gastner peering out of the wings to which he dispatched himself upon retirement. Estelle's new job continues to be far from easy, and now she is faced the death of a young woman on a motorcycle - a death that could have been caused by improper driving from one of the county's traffic officers when he tried to stop her for speeding. But there is more than meets the eye, Gastner is there to help, but Estelle can go far to cope. This series continues to gain readers, thanks partly to the resurrection of the older books by Poison Penn Press.

In this sequel to Steve Havill's Scavengers, Estelle Reyes-Guzman plunges into her new job as undersheriff of Posadas County and the action never stops. As Bill Gastner, recently retired sheriff and hero of Havill's previous series, lurks diplomatically in the background, Estelle must deal with the disappearance of a local insurance broker who was about to be indicted for fraud. A far worse challenge comes when one of her officers, on a wild chase through town, causes the death of a young single mother in a motorcycle crash. Estelle handles her challenges with aplomb, even as she struggles at home with two very active little boys, a surgeon husband who is often at the hospital when he'd planned to be home, and a mother disabled by old age.
